Think this could be a really good series just like the Sri Lanka tour with lots of fast scoring/flowing tests. West Indies look half decent especially in the bowling stakes with Gabriel, Roach and Holder all very good performers. My team although they won't go for it would be... Burns Woakes (they'll go Jennings) Bairstow Root Stokes Buttler Foakes Ali Curran/Rashid on conditions Broad Jimmy.
I'll predict a 2-1 England victory, chucked in a half day today to watch..always loved the Caribbean test matches, the 90 tour is probably the first away series I remember. Gooch, Lamb, Ned Larkins taking it to Marshall, Ian Bishop, Patrick Patterson and Walsh (Ambrose couldn't get in the side!!)...conch shells in the background and Tony Lewis on the mike, great stuff!!
Just sorting out somewhere a bit different for long weekend of drunken debauchery. Prices look ridiculously cheap, what's the beer and vino scene like. We're all a bit old so not worried about late night clubs etc as will probably have fallen asleep/into a coma during dinner anyway.
Great start from our young lads in their QF vs the Aussies, currently have them 28-4 and on the ropes. On SS4 & being played at the glorious Queenstown in NZ being overlooked by the aptly named Remarkable Mountains. The only place I've ever watched cricket where planes taking off behind the bowlers arm stops the game!!!
Thought last nights WC play off despite lacking in any real quality was an absorbing match and expecting more of the same tonight. Going to be an absolute battle and probably some hoofing we would be proud of. Who's everybody backing? Last minute Jonas screamer....
